Living Anatomy - A Muscle Review Day for Therapists

Living Anatomy - A Muscle Review Day
27th Oct 2019

Let's face it, lots of us struggle to remember the names of all of the muscles, their actions, origins, insertions etc! And trying to learn them and revise them from a book or chart isn't exactly fun! This one-day course focuses on learning / reviewing muscles in an applied ‘hands on’ way and the day is thoroughly enjoyable . It is open to all qualified (minimum level 3) massage practitioners, aromatherapists & massage students, whatever your prior experience or knowledge of muscles. We aim to send you home enthused!

5 CPD Points

The aim is to provide you with understanding and experience which you can use to enhance your massage practice - by being able to identify muscles by touch (palpation), understand their actions in a practical way

This will not be a ‘dry’ course of academic information, but an interesting, active day using a 3D model with muscles, muscle cut-outs, a range of pictures and charts, and considerable hands-on identification of muscles and tensions within them.

The course begins with a review of the main bones and joints to lay the groundwork for making sense of how the muscles work on them. We’ll look at the logic of muscle shapes and actions, and identify thirty main muscles / muscle groups (including their attachments and their actions). To aid understanding and memory, we’ll look at muscles within their functional groups
